In reviewing applications for expungement and pardons it is customary for states to reach out to the prosecutor and the complaining witness and factor their opinions into their determination.

Petitioners denied expungement area able to appeal. Here's a link to a case in which an Ohio appeal in this area was granted, which will give you some idea of how an appellate court weighs both sides to arrive at a decision.
